Whether you’re looking for a casual look for the weekend, or an elegant look for a date, there are tons of options for the latest fashion trends. Here are some of the hottest looks for the summer.
Crochet sets of the 70s
’70s fashion was all the rage. The hippie movement had a fondness for kaleidoscopic garments. Those in the know took notice. Aside from the usual suspects, a number of designers took a look at the technique to come up with a modern day spin.
There are a number of notable Crochet sets available on the market. The cost of a one-of-a-kind piece can run in the thousands of dollars. A number of brands are returning to eco-friendly handcrafted designs. The ’80s may have been the last decade to truly embrace the hippie movement, but there’s no reason for this trend to go the way of the dodo.
Whether you’re into nautical, bold or subtle, stripes are here to stay. Designers are using the pattern in all sorts of ways, from playful to dramatic. Luckily, you can try some of them out in your own wardrobe.
For instance, a long-sleeved striped shirt by La Redoute makes a great focal point for a layered look. It’s also a perfect match with wide-leg jeans or a pair of chunky loafers. A striped espadrille is also a nice touch.
The best way to wear stripes is to wear a multi-coloured version of the pattern. A pair of denim jeans and a striped sweater can make for a great summer look. You can also wear stripes with sneakers, leggings or a fleece blanket.
Whether you are trying to dress for a casual date or a night out, the midi skirt is a great wardrobe staple. The skirt has a relaxed fit that shows off your figure and can be dressed up or down with ease. They are also versatile and can be worn all year long.
If you want to make a statement with your skirt, choose a bold print. Especially with the current trend of head-to-toe monochrome prints, you can easily achieve a chic look with a printed skirt.
Another fun way to make a statement is to pair a patterned skirt with a fitted top. For example, Christine of Hello Fashion Blog styled her faux leather pleated midi skirt with a plaid button-down.
Despite being a staple in fashion for a long time, ruffles are not always thought of as a versatile option. However, it has been proven that ruffles can be the perfect fit for a number of occasions.
Throughout the years, designers have incorporated ruffles into their designs, and it has now become an important part of the women’s formal clothing line. They can be added to dresses or blouses for a dramatic effect, or as a fun detail on an otherwise basic shirt.
Ruffles can be made from a variety of materials. For example, a sheer ruffle top is a great way to add a little flair to a bare arm. It can also be combined with a more structured bottom, like jeans or skirts.
Originally launched in the ’80s, logo mania has made a comeback as fashion has embraced nostalgia, re-envisioning iconic monogrammed pieces from the past. Logos are also used in more subtle ways.
Several luxury fashion houses have re-emerged with logo-embedded pieces. Gucci, Chanel, and Louis Vuitton have embraced the new era of maximalist all-over printed fashion.
The new generation of designers has embraced the trend in a less obvious way. Louis Vuitton teamed up with Supreme to produce a collection of sportswear that includes logos, which prompted logo mania to take off.
One of the most glam-worthy logo-embedded items to hit the market is a pair of cursive-F tights from Fendi. The design is set to be a staple amongst the fashion set.
Y2K-inspired attire is a fashion trend that started in the early 2000s. It has been popular among celebrities, including Bella Hadid and Hailey Bieber. However, Gen Z is not ready to fully embrace the trend yet. They want to go back to the “simpler” days.
In order to recreate the Y2K aesthetic, you need to be able to mix and match the right tops and bottoms. You can also use accessories to complete your look.
One of the most popular Y2K-inspired items is the bandana. They can be used as a hair tie, headband, or even a scarf. They are ideal for a carefree summer look.
